Many fans see a rematch between UFC flyweight Joseph Benavidez and champion Demetrious Johnson as a foregone conclusion considering the in-ring aptitude both possess, the closeness of their initial encounter, and the relatively shallow state of the organization’s 125-pound pool. However, before Benavidez earns his second shot at gold he’ll have to get by Darren Uyenoyama at UFC on FOX 7.
Organization officials have confirmed the April 20 outing.
Uyenoyama (8-3) has come out with his hand raised in a trio of consecutive clashes including two inside the Octagon. He was last seen choking out Phil Harris in October.
